Good evening everybody. I have a few items to install for an Audio System upgrade; but don't know how to go about it. The Items that will be involved are -1 Distribution Block -2 Amps. -1 Capacitor. -1 Equalizer/Crossover -6 Speakers in Total (2 tweeters, 2 Front Door 6.5's, and 2 6x9's) -1 Subwoofer

I'm trying to connect 2 amps; 1 for the Subwoofer and the Second for Speakers. My Aftermarket Head Unit has 3 pairs of RCA plug-ins.
1) Subwoofer 2) Front 3) Rear.

How Would I connect the 6 speakers (which I'm going to rewire) to the 1st amp? Do I wire the Speakers to the Amp or Straight to the Head unit itself? Also, how would I connect the amp to the Head unit if it only has the 3 RCA plug-ins as stated above?

Any advice or suggestions are Welcomed. Thanks in advance.

But based off of what you said and assuming your equipment is compatable. If your tweeter has an in-line cross over I’d wire it in parallel with your 6.5 to channel 1/2, and 6x9 to 3/4.  

 

Rca front to 1/2 rear to 3/4 and sub to the other amp.

No need for rear deck speakers as the subs will drown them out, sell the 6x9s and put towards something else.

If you have a 4 channel amp, then put tweeters on channels 1&2 and 6.5" mids on channels 3&4. Unless they are component speakers and you dont want or have the means to run active.

Need more info like stated above to give you specified help.

What exact speakers, brand and model number? Same with subwoofer.

 

Any upgraded wiring (Big 3) or AGM battery under hood. 

 

What equipment is actually installed now and how?

 

What head unit do you have?

With you having a 2channel amplifier for your front stage, I hope you are running a component set with passive crossovers for your mids and highs.

1. Well if your running amps, you have to wire to the amp not radio.

2. I thought your intentions were to run the lanzar eq? You would have to run front outputs to eq input. Then send rca to your desired amp. Sub I would just send signal straight to amp.

There's lots of part numbers but honestly from amp selection I would run mmats 4 channel on speakers and kicker 2 channel on sub. Depending on speaker ohms you might be better running separate amp on 6x9s if you must have 6x9, altho like stated before, it is pretty much waste of time.. Is this your first system install?

      Hello everyone, long time no see. I am selling a pair of Dual 2-ohm (technically D1.7) 12" Sundown X v.2's built by Dave Leib a.k.a "Strongman Designs." 
      Reason I am selling them is because I realized upon testing to see if my digital multi-meter was working correctly that one of the coils is reading higher on the one sub indicating that too much heat had been applied to it recently so rather than risking any further damage to it I am going to assume that I have too much power for these.
      Having said this in all honesty, let me make it perfectly clear here that both subs are still in perfect working order as we speak, even the one that is reading differently. Had I not thrown my multi-meter on it to test it in order to see if it was working properly (the multi-meter itself) I would have never known there was any difference or discrepancy between the two.  
      However, because one of them is reading off now and I do not know what is to be expected out of it's performance long-term I will be letting these go for $500+ shipping (that includes both).
      Any further questions or concerns please feel free to text me at 440-915-2309
      Phil
